at this point they have romney and obama tied at 47-47, a lot of other polls we've been going through. governor gilmore what do you think happened and what do you think needs to happen at least from the romney campaign perspective as we get into the last two debates? >> well, becky, i think that the democratic party had been painting governor romney as some cartoon, that he didn't like people, didn't like americans. i think the debate allowed people to see him directly and to understand and get a feel for him and to know that he does care not just about some americans but all americans, and that means that he's got to continue to pound out there, that we need to have a better policy, an economic policy and that we need to get more jobs, we get more people employed and frankly you're not going to, unless there's a change in america's economic policy and we can't afford to wait and that's the message that he's got to do. but the good news is that the polls are showing that the people are closing in and that things are getting better, some polls are showing him ahead now in virginia, within one in
in the world at the virginia military institute. the governor doesn't think that president obama is providing strong leadership. >> i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east aligned with us. i share this hope. but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. when our defense spending is being arbitrarily and deeply cut. when we have no trade agenda to speak of. the perception of our strategy is not one of partnership, but of passivity. >> kimberly: all right. do you think this is the right message and tone? a lot of discussion whether or not romney was going to come out on top on foreign policy. generally speaking, it's been one of the strong suits of president obama, given the past developments versus recent developments. >> eric: yeah, i'm not sure it was so -- i don't know. it was okay. it was good. he hit on all the point he is needed to make. he had to do it. something people said, president obama has an ad out today saying he is weak on foreign policy, a wimp.
live in virginia. as i mentioned, president obama's team was responding to governor remain knee's speech -- romney's speech before he gave it. after he spoke, a spokeswoman for the president said, this is somebody who leads with chest pounding rhetoric. he is inexperienced and the american people have serious questions about whether he's prepared to be commander in chief. team fox coverage continues. ed envy with the president in california. we're hearing from the president himself, ed. >> that's right. bring it on. that was the simple response from the president's campaign spokesman in chicago who says the president believes he has a strong record on foreign policy. he welcomes this debate and, in fact, last night in a fund-raiser here in california, the president laid out his record and said it's pretty good. >> four years ago i told you i'd end the war in iraq and we did. [ cheers and applause ] i said i'd end the war in afghanistan. we are. [ cheers and applause ] i said we'd focus on the people who actually attacked us on 9-11 and today osama bin laden is no more. >> now, p
views of governor romney. he's now polled even with obama among voters who see him as a quote strong leader. just last month, romney was trailing in that category, trailing, not just by a little. by 13 points, in fact. another contributing factor to obama's slide, women. this might be a surprise, but women are now evenly divided in their support of the two candidates. take a look at your screen. just last month, obama led romney by 18 points among women, so that is big. and keep in mind obama won this voting block by 13 points in 2008, so it's getting even bigger. another contributing factor to romney's big gains, voters say they think he's the candidate who may have the answers to move this country forward. and they think so by 47-40. the voters say romney is the candidate with what they say are new ideas. but just as the republicans complained of f the pollsters and their methods when they were trailing in the polls, the obama campaign is pushing back, too. noting that more republicans were surveyed this time around tipping the scales perhaps in their favor. they're pointing to the
' column on friday struck me, complimentary of governor romney, and he wrote this about the challenge for the president. politically, the president will have to go back to portraying romney as a flip flopper instead of an idea log. so far obama has seemed driven by the negative passion of stopping republican extremism. he'll have to develop a positive passion for something he actually wants to do in a second term. >> yeah. well, i think he might be right to this degree. but president obama has a record. we have completely changed how education is being evaluated. the president's race to the top. support for community colleges. we have invested in new alternative energies because everybody knows despite what mitt romney said that the only way we're going to become energy independent is with a mix of energy sources. he has provided health care, so much to the extent that mitt romney started to claim credit again for what he could do in health care. this actually is a president with a record beyond just digging us out of our jobs hole. and i think, though, that it's important when we loo
